Since it’s been a while since I’ve blogged I thought it was definitely time for a life update sort of blog. So YES; I’m alive and blogging! I have felt a little pressure to post SOMETHING on this blog (it has been 4 months since my last post!!) but there wasn’t much going on during the start of the year worth blogging. I was stuck to my desk, drowning in project deadlines. But maybe you find the view of my desk interesting…
So i’m currently sat in bed, with my Mac Book on my lap, listening to Disney songs. Nothing remotely glamorise or extravagant about that. But as lucky as I am to travel to all these amazing places there is nothing I like more than being a hermit for a day, closing the curtains from all signs of life and binge watching YouTube all day. Be prepared for this blog to be a little bit all over the place; its been a while since i’ve blogged so everything I want to mention is a bit mismatched.
Anyway, to the moments when I have been more productive. During March I travelled to France for a project, Paris to be exact. It is probably now one of favourite one of favourite places to visit now just simply for its extensive supply of strong cheese and cobbled streets.
Over the past months, I’ve been “introduced” to the world of feminism. It might seem strange to some people that i’m only just discovering its importance in the world but growing up I had a very close mined view of what feminism actually was. (Loads of bra burning and hairy armpits) But thanks to the AMAZING book “You Don’t Have to Like Me by Alida Nugent” i’ve come to realise that feminism is so open and simply about equality and choice. I think I’ll write a whole blog post once I finally finish the book but I love how she is going through each chapter as she is growing up from a baby, adolescent to the current day. It really allows you to think for yourself and understand how decisions are already made for you BECAUSE YOU’RE A WOMEN. It comes down to the really small things like what toys you play with as a child to how you socialise in a nightclub. It’s unlikely going to be the only book I ever read on feminism and gender equality. It definietly doesn’t have all the answers to “finding feminism” and Nugent defiently isn’t claiming to know all the answers but it is really a great start for ME. Thanks to Ingrid Nilsen for the recommendation!
And finally in just 3 days I will leave Sweden to begin the crazy second wedding in Turkey. It will be 23rd April but preparation before is NEEDED… I don’t even have my shoes and also have no idea what is going on. Considering how calm i’ve been the past few months about it I am now getting more and more nervous. I am sure once the big day finally arrives I will love the whole experience but right now I feel a little bit out of my comfort zone. I’m the kind of person that needs a minute by minute step by step guide of how the day will pan out. BUT no one actually knows and like all weddings I just need to stand and look fabulous, take many pictures and smile! I can’t wait to be back in the Turkish culture with all my husband’s family and friends (and I think every person they’ve ever met) and experience it all! I love my dresses, (yes I have 3 different dresses) and I will feel like a Disney princess in at least one. I will do a Turkish wedding photo blog.
Thank you for reading! Enjoy your lazy hermit days, read feminist books and get married in Turkey!
